Build It! Architecture for Kids

Emmi MacIntyre
Tuesday through Thursday, 11 a.m.-2 p.m; Second and fourth Saturdays of each month, 12:30–5 p.m, Wednesday April 17 | $2.

  Build It! Architecture for Kids will be on view  April 13 – July 27, 2013. The exhibit, on loan from archKIDecture in Chicago, provides hands-on opportunities for children to explore architecture and construction.

 The exhibit consists of nine modules presenting architectural subjects including roofs, tools, and shapes. Designed for children age three to twelve, the exhibit uses activities on shapes, color, and symmetries to promote visual literacy while exploring math concepts. The exhibit also encourages children to discover the many properties of building materials and structures.


In addition to the exhibit, The Betts House will also have special Saturday activities for children and families, including hands-on programs on roofing and other trades as well as story times and craft activities. 


An educator open house will take place on April 11, 2013, 3:00 – 6:00 pm. Educators will be invited to preview the exhibit and will be provided with materials for classroom use. Schools, home school groups, and scouts will be able to visit The Betts House and Build It! with free admission.
